Last weekend, my fellow nail blogger, Stamping Queen and I planned a twin manicure which would feature the now famous technique among nail stampers: Leadlight. I must say this is the 1st time I was going to try it and I was not sure how it was going to come out.
Here is what we did....More pics and details below ;)
I used Ulta - Snow White as the base for this manicure
Mariana from Stamping Queen blog suggested me that we used Cheeky plate CH44. At first she said we used the upper floral pattern but I told her that I liked the pattern below it. My nails are longer as you see, and the design I used was better for double-stamping without the design looking chopped off.
Now comes the fun part... for the leadlight technique you have to use jelly finish colors and paint on top of the stamped designs. OPI Tints or Mia Secret tints are perfect for it. In my case, I used a mix of colors from the Mia Secret tints to make pink, purple, blue and yellow. You can use a dotting tool for more accuracy when applying the colors.
After you apply the tints, let dry a bit and add a coat of fast dry topcoat.
Muchísimas gracias Mariana, me divertí mucho haciendo este nail art contigo. Aunque estemos a muchos kilómetros de distancia, fue muy lindo que hayamos podido colaborar en esta manicura ;)
Thank you so much Mariana, I had so much fun doing this nail art with you. We are miles and miles apart but still it's nice we could still do this collaboration ;)
It is mostly in Spanish but nail art works don't need translation ;)
What do you think of this nail art?
